The Union of B.C. Indian Chiefs is an organization which works collectively amongst Indigenous Nations in BC and acts as an advocacy body to provide a cohesive voice in support of Indigenous Nations and communities, and to promote and protect each Nation’s exercise of Sovereignty within their traditional territories. The UBCIC Resource Centre is a specialized research library and archives which focuses on BC land rights research. The UBCIC RC has embraced an open source ecosystem as an economical and effective method for providing access to resources for researchers. Resource Centre director Alissa Cherry and technology consultant James Fournie will discuss the creation and growth of the UBCIC digital collections program over the years, which uses the Greenstone Digital Library Software and leverages cloud-based tools like Archive.org, all within a low budget. Hear about some other uses of open source software in the UBCICRC including Linux workstations and custom-built finding aids. Also hear why UBCIC chose Evergreen and how UBCIC migrated from an InMagic database to become one of the first libraries in Canada to use Evergreen in production. Also hear how it plans to use Evergreen in the future.
